All Hail The Allman Brothers Band - 50th Anniversary Tribute
Setting the standard for live performance, today we pay homage to and celebrate the iconic music career of those beloved peaches, The Allman Brothers Band, on their 50th Anniversary of The Fillmore East album release and upcoming Madison Square Garden Tribute Performance Release.
With deep southern roots that sprouted fame from the sleepy small town of Macon, GA on to the international stage, The Allman Brothers Band formed in 1969. Led by brothers Duane and Gregg Allman with Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johnson, this rock band would blend blues, jazz and country music along with jam-band improvisation and instrumentals to craft a distinct Americanah sound.
After a couple stagnant studio releases, the band’s big break came with their 1971 live release, At Fillmore East, featuring iconic tracks like In Memory of Elizabeth Reed and Whipping Post - both a commercial and artistic success, it is still considered to be among the best live albums ever made.
Marked by peaks, valleys, tragedy and stagnant “in-betweens”, The Allman Brothers paved a legacy that would serenade us over the course of five decades.
On March 10, 2020, just before the entire live entertainment industry shut down, the surviving and alumni members of The Allman Brothers Band performed a special 50th anniversary show at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The concert marked the first time that Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, Marc Quinones and Jaimoe had been together onstage together since the deaths of founding members Butch Trucks and Gregg Allman.
Joining the band for the show were Duane Trucks, Chuck Leavell (a member of the band from 1972-1976) and keyboard player Reese Wynans, who was a member of the band The Second Coming with future Allman Brother Band founding members Dickey Betts and Berry Oakley, and who was also the keyboard played for Stevie Ray Vaughan‘s Double Trouble backing trio.
Available from Peach Records, the entire performance will be released on CD, DVD and
Blu-ray, as well as digitally and by select streaming services, on July 23, 2021.
